As the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) has declared the 2024 National and Provincial Elections as free and fair, the question on everyone’s mind is how many seats their parties have been allocated in provincial legislatures. 

Despite objections, the Commission declared the 2024 elections as free and fair during the results ceremony at its national results operation centre on Sunday, 2 June.
